Apple announced today “somewhat unexpectedly” the Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro coming to iPad this month. Of course, they will only do so under a subscription model.
The awaited moment has finally arrived. One of the best video editors finally arrives on the iPad to enhance the use cases of the Cupertino tablet and gives (a little more) meaning to the Silicon chips that they have been implementing for a few years. Apple boasts that Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro will have an entirely new touch interface that takes direct advantage of the multi-touch capabilities of the iPad:
Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad feature all-new touch interfaces that allow users to enhance their workflows with the immediacy and intuitiveness of multi-touch. Final Cut Pro for iPad introduces a powerful set of tools for video creators to shoot, edit, finish and share, all from a single portable device. Logic Pro for iPad puts the power of professional music creation in the hands of the creator, wherever they are, with a complete collection of sophisticated tools for composing, creating beats, recording, editing and mixing.
Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad will be available for the aforementioned subscription model for a price of $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, with a free trial month. Final Cut Pro requires an iPad with an M1 chip or newer, while Logic Pro requires an iPad A12 Bionic or newer. Apple has also confirmed that both apps will be Available on the App Store starting Tuesday, May 23.
Great news for all creators, publishers and iPad users who want to have two of the most powerful tools in this area on their devices.
